LI, Chaopin et al. The density and species of mite breeding in the stored products in China. Nutr. Hosp. [online]. 2015, vol.31, n.2, pp.798-807. ISSN 1699-5198.

Objective: The aim of our study was to investigate the species and breeding density of acaroid mites in stored products in China. Methods: We tentatively harvested the samples from the products stored in warehouses, commercial stores and civilian houses, and the products. Results: The results suggested the mites varied a lot in species regarding their ecological habitus and habitat. Still, the breeding density in different samples was associated with the sampling conditions. Conclusions: These discrepancies may be associated with the samples collected in diverse environment for the mites, and the findings easily suggest that acaroid mites are in universal distribution.
